The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is currently seeking applicants who have experience working in Colorado’s recycling, composting, and/or reuse industries to fill four vacant seats on the Pollution Prevention Advisory Board Assistance Committee. This committee is tasked with oversight of the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity (RREO) Fund, advising the department on the administration of this Fund’s grant and rebate programs.
Due to the committee’s membership requirements as prescribed in statute, two of the seats that are available can be filled only by those who are employed by a for-profit business or nonprofit organization. The remaining two seats must be filled by a representative of an urban and rural municipality, respectively. The selected applicant will serve out the remaining term of the seat being filled (either through August 2017 or August 2019).
Selected applicants will have the option to re-apply as an incumbent for up to two consecutive four-year terms. All committee members are appointed by the Executive Director of the department through a competitive selection process. Note that being a member of this committee does not preclude your business or organization from applying for future grant or rebate opportunities through the RREO program.
Applications will be accepted through February 3, 2016.
For more details or assistance in completing an application, contact Eric Heyboer, RREO Program Administrator, at 303-691-4955 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
